Christen's Story

I was born and raised in Waco, Texas and attended Blinn in College Station, Richland College, and Dallas Baptist University. Before I became a Preplanning Specialist, I spent over a decade traveling around Texas as a singer-songwriter, entertaining and connecting with people through music. However, having suffered several significant personal losses, I came to appreciate the compassion and professionalism of the funeral directors and associates I knew. I have a true passion for helping families be as prepared as possible for the day when they face loss and for making each celebration of life a special tribute for loved ones. After serving families as an Advanced Planning Advisor at the oldest family-owned funeral home in San Antonio, Porter-Loring Mortuary, I decided to move back to the Metroplex to be closer to family and friends. In March 2021, I joined the New Hope Funeral Home team, and I'm excited to serve Sunnyvale and surrounding communities with all their preplanning needs.
